"Being in a small community and having access to something like this that can change the lives of our patients is something to be very proud of. It’s a ray of light to know that we’re on the cusp of changing how this pandemic affects us."
Steve Hoffart, Owner and Pharmacist
It wasn’t long after the first COVID-19 vaccine was granted FDA approval that Steve Hoffart, owner of Magnolia Pharmacy, took to Facebook Live to give his community an enthusiastic update on the topic. Two weeks later, Magnolia Pharmacy had 500 appointments booked for their first allocation and vaccinations were underway for frontline healthcare workers in the area. Their pharmacy was able to contract directly with the State of Texas to procure doses of the Moderna vaccine. While waiting for their next allocation, Magnolia Pharmacy posted a form to their website where patients could provide their name and email address to be notified as soon as more doses are available and the pharmacy’s appointment portal is reopening.
